What we’ve been doing
In 2020 and 2021, as complications from COVID-19 required ongoing adaptation and flexibility, we recognized this wasn’t business as usual. We expanded our philanthropic efforts to continue empowering our community as they supported vulnerable populations during challenging times.
We’re providing online resources for disability-related information and support, offering Salesforce CRM installation and technical assistance to other organizations working with Deaf, disabled, and neurodiverse communities, and expanding our grantmaking work.
